Trying too Hard?

Pros: Its location
Cons: 21st century management and cooking
Location: Peak District National Park
Good location in heart of the National Park with hiking trails outside the front door. Good views across fields into Chatsworth estate and lovely 17th/18th buildings sensitively decorated. But no air conditioning in the hottest month of the year, and no staff knowledge of how to control temperatures by closing curtains etc., during the day, and turning off bath towel heating rails etc. The main dinner menu was "heart-attack central", 1960's old-fashioned, and patronized not by the slim. The staff were nice, somewhat obsequious, but overly prowling with not much to do when times were slack. Breakfast was punctuated by nearby noisy vacuum cleaning and the strong smell of bleach. Two boiled eggs cost as much as a full English Breakfast despite 1/8th the labour and cooking gas.
